- THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Jena Malone ("Hatfields & McCoys," Sucker Punch) is in the running to play the strong-willed tribute Johanna Mason in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
We recently reported that Mia Wasikowska was up that same role in the film. However, EW has now debunked that rumour, and now it would appear that Wasikowska is definetly not in the running for a role in the Hunger Games sequel film
The character is described in author Suzanne Collins’ bestseller as possessing “a wicked ability to murder,” winning her Hunger Games by pretending to be weak and then picking off the other tributes.
EW also pointed out that Joanna is naked when she first meets Katniss, but with the studio desperately chasing a PG-13 rating for the film, will they be willing to have this meeting play on screen as it was depicted in the book.
More casting news would seem to come out of The Hunger Games as USA Today revealed that WWF fighter Kevin Nash is currently up for an undisclosed role in Catching Fire.
|Kevin Nash in The Hunger Games... Awesomeness!!!|
Nash teased, saying, "I just pray it's recurring, that he doesn't get killed."
There are only two roles that could suit Nash, and that would be the role or Brutus or Chaff. But we have a feeling h will be playing Brutus. His described as a Male tribute from District 2. He is mentioned by Katniss to "can't wait to get back into the arena". He is in his early forties, meaning he won his Hunger Games shortly after Haymitch Abernathy.
